New for 2015-16 at REAMS
Rockford Elementary Arts Magnet School staff is planning something new for start to the 2015-2016 school year, on September 8 and 9 called ‘Assessment Days,’ for all REAMS students.
On Tuesday, September 8 and Wednesday, September 9, REAMS will be inviting families to bring their child into school for an individual appointment with their classroom teacher.  Students and their parents can plan to be at school for about two hours on the day of their scheduled appointment to participate in various activities, such as meeting the teacher, taking an individualized reading assessment, taking their school portrait, receiving bus safety training, and completing hearing and vision screenings. Information regarding your child’s classroom placement and teacher assignment will be sent in mid-August. At that time, families have the ability to sign up for an appointment (day and time) to meet with the teacher and complete each of the activities

Weather/Emergency Procedures
School closings due to severe weather or other emergency reasons will be announced over KARE (11),  WCCO (4), KSTP (5) and KMSP (9). In addition, an email and/or phone announcement will be made to families using the contact information received in our student database, Infinite Campus.

Generally, school will be in session if it is felt that the buses can make their routes in relative safety. Even if school is in session, parents are asked to assess their situation and determine whether or not it is safe for their children to attend school on a particular day. If a parent determines not to send their child to school due to deteriorating weather conditions, the absence will be excused.

About NWSISD
The Northwest Suburban Integration School District #6078 (NWSISD) was created in 2001 in response to the State of Minnesota’s Desegregation Rule. Specifically, NWSISD was established based on the identification of the Brooklyn Center and ISD 279 - Osseo Area Schools as racially isolated entities as defined by the Desegregation Rule. 

NWSISD originally included seven member districts: Anoka-Hennepin School District, Brooklyn Center Schools, Buffalo-Hanover-Montrose Schools, Elk River Area School District, Fridley Public Schools, ISD 279 - Osseo Area Schools, and Rockford Public Schools. Mounds View Public Schools joined the consortium prior to the 2010-2011 school year. .
